Paws with Cause week: Throwback Thursday

Meme hosted by Melissa My World in Words and Pages. It's about books that are already on the shelves and are waiting to be read. Go to her website to join in!
Also a part of Paws week! :)
The Other End of the Leash shares a revolutionary, new perspective on our relationship with dogs, focusing on our behavior in comparison with that of dogs. An applied animal behaviorist and dog trainer with more than twenty years experience, Dr. Patricia McConnell looks at humans as just another interesting species, and muses about why we behave the way we do around our dogs, how dogs might interpret our behavior, and how to interact with our dogs in ways that bring out the best in our four-legged friends.

After all, although humans and dogs share a remarkable relationship that is unique in the animal world, we are still two entirely different species, each shaped by our individual evolutionary heritage. Quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are canids (like wolves, coyotes, and foxes). Since we each speak a different native tongue, a lot gets lost in the translation.
This has been recommended to me. I have it, but haven't had the time to open it but I think it would be something I'd enjoy!

So, any treats on your tbr? :D

  2. Hah, I agree with Mary, that is one pretty cool cover. I'm supposed to tackle my tbr this month for the tbr challenge hosted by Kimba, but so far, all I've managed to read is more arcs. Please excuse me why I wallow in despair. :D

  3. Look at that little nugget on the cover! He's so adorable and happy:) I want to hug him and bring him home because my boys do what I call the pogo stick, so I think they'd all get along really well ;-)

  6. Oh this sounds like a cute one. :) ANd yes, dogs do make us do things we wouldn't normally. :) Thank you!

  7. This does sound interesting. If you look at things objectively we are just another species. When I read werewolf books I try to think about how close and how far away they are from the canine family. I bet this would be a cool book!
